Replacing a selection

Jump to Mobile or Windows 10


Replace is the default selection setting. So if it's the default setting, when would you ever use Replace outside of your initial selection? Say you have made a selection, added to it a few times and realized that that just wasn’t working. At this point you might want to start again, so Replace would come in handy.
